VICTORY: DFA celebrates Jahana Hayes’ win in U.S. House primary in Connecticut’s 5th
Jahana Hayes just won her competitive Democratic primary in Connecticut's 5th Congressional District. Democracy for America endorsed Hayes last week.
Statement from Democracy for America Chair Jim Dean on Jahana Hayes big win in the race for U.S. House in Connecticut's 5th:
"Jahana Hayes' primary victory tonight is a tremendous win for anyone who believes that Congress can't work for the country until it starts to look more like the rest of the country.
"An award-winning teacher, a woman of color, and an unwavering progressive fighter, Jahana Hayes will give Connecticut voters an opportunity this November to ensure that a new generation of leaders with a wide range of life experiences is leading the fight for inclusive populist priorities like Medicare for All, comprehensive immigration reform, and robust gun violence prevention legislation.
"Democracy for America was honored to stand with Jahana Hayes in this primary fight and we look forward to battling at her side through this fall's election and beyond." -- Jim Dean, Chair, Democracy for America
